The Stitches Matter

Lecture

It's not done till it's quilted. That's Ann's fascination with quilts. She uses her own quilts going back over 30 years to show how the quilting adds pattern, texture, dimension, and most importantly—meaning—to a quilt top. This lecture explores the potential of quilting by hand as well as with domestic and longarm sewing machines. Ann will discuss the physical realities of different stitches, methods and patterns—advantages and disadvantages—that accompany them.
